Snorre is an oil field in the Tampen area of the North Sea, around 150 kilometres west of Florø. The field has been developed using two floating integrated production facilities, Snorre A and B, and one subsea template tied back to Snorre A. Statoil is the field's operator.
The objective of the audit was to verify robust planning and execution of drilling and well activities and safe operation, including the technical condition of well control equipment at Snorre B. We also verified that processes had been established to ensure compliance with the preconditions, limitations and recommendations in the emergency preparedness analysis for Snorre B and that these are communicated out to the emergency preparedness organisation, so that the operator maintains a robust and competent emergency preparedness organisation in a period of operating life extension.
